    Yoga Exercises – Gravity Poses are passive stretches that work deeply into the body’s connective tissues for flexibility. Yoga and flexibility go hand-and-hand, but for stretching specifically, there are unique approaches that make things easier. Click above to get started with my free, 7-day email course.

    Tadasana - Stand straight with your feet together and hands at your side. Now slowly raise both your hands upwards, fingers pointing towards the sky. Now slowly raise your heels as much as you can and stand on your toes. Repeat 3-4 times.

    Trikonasana - Stand straight with your legs apart. Now slowly raise both your hands on each side so that they are parallel to the shoulder. Bend towards the right side such that the index finger of your right hand touches the right toe. Simultaneously, your left hand should go upwards. Return to normal position and repeat with the other side.
    Similarly one can try poses like Bhujangasana, Shirshasana, Sarvangasana.

    Backbend tips: Yoga Postures

    Dynamic, static-active and static-passive are the three major types of flexibility. Dynamic flexibility is the ability to attain a ceiling range of motion of the joint while performing a movement. In simple words this type of flexibility is exhibited in walking, running, or participating in physical activity. Static-active is equated more to the general stretching earlier to performing exercise, such as bending over and touching your toes (without bouncing). at last, static-passive flexibility is the range of motion achieved by the joint structure when an outside force such as another person or equipment assists the movement.

    Stretching exercises are beneficial for our health and help to keep our body supple and flexible. ree online resources for YOGA people:
